RubyMine 2017.2 EAP 2: Breadcrumbs for Ruby

Hi all,

RubyMine 2017.2 EAP 2 (build 172.2465.15) is now released. If you tried the previous EAP build, you may have noticed a new design we introduced for XML and HTML breadcrumbs. This update continues in the same vein and adds breadcrumbs for structure elements in Ruby:


To turn breadcrumbs on, simply right-click the pane to the left (or the bottom) of the editor, choose Breadcrumbs, and attach them to the top or bottom of the editor. You can also toggle breadcrumbs with the Go to action, or find it in the settings (Preferences / Settings | Editor | General |Breadcrumbs).

The current implementation shows the following structure elements:

  • Modules, classes and singleton classes
  • Methods
  • Blocks (both braced and do-end)
  • Lambdas
  • Custom names for RSpec groups and examples

As for other improvements, this update also fixes some minor issues found in the previous EAP build.

Download this EAP build from our website.

See the release notes for the full list of improvements, and use our tracker to submit any issues you encounter.
